What Are Buyers Looking For In A prime Location Luxury London Property?
As estate agents specialising in the St John’s Wood, Maida Vale and Hampstead property market, Aston Chase is accustomed to dealing with buying, selling and letting requests for luxury London property. Our clients have varied needs and tastes and are very discerning when it comes to what they want. The good news is London’s prime property locations offer it all, but what exactly are clients asking for?
Location is still king
A prime location still greatly influences people’s property decisions. Proximity to work, good schools, transport links and recreational facilities all direct location searches. London also has some very distinctive areas, such as quiet enclaves, city villages or contemporary high-rise developments, each creating their own ambience for a specific lifestyle taste.
Kitchens are no longer just rooms with one function – cooking. They are used to make a statement and act as the focus for entertainment as well as providing all the high tech integrated fixture and fittings to make food preparation a joy. In fact, one kitchen may no longer be enough. Clients can have one room for entertaining and a back-of-house kitchen for staff to create exquisite meals.
Many London residents want their own personal outdoor spaces. Family gardens, outdoor party areas, balconies with city views or rooftop gardens all help to provide a sense of space and a break from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Off street parking.
Off street parking is a must and a garage is even better, but if you have several vehicles that warrant that extra care, easily accessible underground parking attached to the property, with lift access, provides extra security.
High tech homes
Smart homes with integrated technology for media systems, lighting or domestic services to run the home more easily and to make them greener are increasingly sought after.
Living quarters for staff
Running a busy household and managing an extensive property often takes the support of private staff. Being able to offer attractive accommodation is one way to help ensure you can attract and retain the best.
Excellent security and privacy
Automated gates, private drives, state of art security systems, CCTV, panic rooms and enclosed properties are all important to anyone wishing to secure their prime location property and protect their privacy.
Home fitness and recreation facilities
Making the most of downtime is important and people want the convenience and flexibility to do this in the comfort of their own home. Fitness suites, saunas, pools, home cinemas, games rooms are all on the wish list for those seeking something extra from their property.
